Puducherry is a city of contradictions. From the firmly traditional saris and dhotis of the Aayyas (grandmas) and the Thathas (grandpas), the popular and modern café culture of the French, to the bohemian, and enigmatic lifestyle of the folks at Auroville … there is a little bit of something for everyone. Everyone who comes to Puducherry finds a place, everyone fits in—possibly why Puducherry still has such a magnetic hold over people’s imagination. 

In Puducherry, we will visit the historical French Quarter, where quaint French houses can still be found on gorgeous tree-lined avenues, and the streets still have French names.

A couple of hours away, we will go on a on a magical journey through the Pitchvaram Mangrove Forest. Known to be the world’s second largest mangrove, after the Sunderbans, the Pitchvaram Mangrove Forest spreads over 1,100 hectares before joining the Bay of Bengal.

The Nataraj Temple in Chidambaram, one of the five holiest places to worship Lord Shiva and known to be one of the oldest active Chola temples is our next stop.

 Any trip to Puducherry would be incomplete without a trip to the hallowed grounds of Auroville!! Having caused waves when it was first founded in the 60s for its principles of peace and humanity, Auroville still beguiles people and crowds of tourists throng to it every year. 

After living the bohemian life, we end our holiday with a visit to Mahabalipuram to see the ancient shore temple, the panch rathas, and other rock carvings. Make sure to keep some extra room in your bags for a little shopping at the local leather stores before heading back to Chennai.

 Our itinerary promises to be a fun, relaxed one where you chill out or move at a slightly more frenetic pace and ‘do Puducherry’.

The choice is yours. 

We will stay at a charming 19th century colonial heritage guesthouse located in the French Quarter with oodles of character. It’s a small property and will have mainly our guests.

 Join WeGoBond as we go back to one of our favourite places.
